Team profile

Tunisia made their World League debut last season and were the sole African representatives in the competition. Their only win was a five-set victory over Mexico as they finished bottom of Pool F and joint-last in Group 3 with Puerto Rico. This year they are the highest-ranked side in Group 3 Pool F and will play Montenegro, Puerto Rico and Turkey. The 2014 World Championship was next on the agenda for Tunisia and they finished bottom of a pool that included Brazil and Germany. Their only point came from a five-set defeat to Cuba and they were ranked joint-21st overall.
 
In 2013 Tunisia finished second at the Mediterranean Games and African Championship, a defeat by Egypt denying them the gold medal in the latter. The eight-time continental champions have participated in six Olympic Games, with a best finish of ninth at Los Angeles 1984. At London 2012 they lost all five matches and won just one set. They have competed at every World Championship since 2002 but have recorded just three victories, all in 2006. At continental level, they have won a medal at each African Championship they have competed in, apart from in 2009 when they finished fifth. In 2013 their youngsters posted an eighth-place finish at the World Under-23 Championship.
Coach profile

Fethi Mkaouer first guided Tunisia's men's team from 1994 to 1996, before returning in 2010. He oversaw their World League debut in 2014 where they won one match and finished equal-seventh in Group 3, an improvement on their winless World Championships campaign that year. Mkaouer and Tunisia have had better luck in regional international tournaments, winning African Championships bronze in 2011, silver in front of their home fans in 2013 and gold at the 2012 Arab Volleyball Championships. Mkaouer was in charge of the Tunisia Olympic Games teams that finished equal-11th in 1996 and 2012. He also spent time as head coach of Bahrain's men's team.
